Monday - Much More Relaxed than LAST Monday

In my wildest imaginations, I did not think we'd still be unpacking, hanging photos and clearing a garage mid-August.  Funny how we rushed to be here to close the end of June. God has a sense of humor and uncanny timing. I do believe THIS was the best house for us.

In any event, with the school year starting up here TODAY...and us still surrounded by boxes, we'll be getting a late start....BUT I need to find a balance between settling in and carrying on with routines.

WEDNESDAY is Stacia's birthday - the day we count down more eagerly than Christmas. πŸ˜‰ Even with our later than we thought closing date, we'd hoped to have things settled by her birthday. Today, I decided to take the day off and go shop for groceries (we'll have company this week), shop for a birthday, get my lab work done (it was due a week ago but I couldn't get away), visit the post office and we had to visit Fred Meyers for a few items that Walmart didn't have.

While Maria and I did this running, Michael and the boys painted the entry way. I think this ends the painting....all is fresh except a couple of rooms that weren't bad and a couple of closets that ARE BAD but I'll keep the doors closed until next spring. πŸ˜†
Nolan - it's quite high

It was good for me to leave as the ladder came out. I.don't.want.to.know. πŸ™ˆ

First cup of fresh mint tea from my plants. Cobie introduced me to this delicacy last month. 

I miss some things about living in the RV - but I LOVE a bigger oven. 

Yes, the dinner bell still works.

The kids played the Hobbit Adventure Board game. Stacia called it promptly at 9 p.m. They are trying to be quiet as CoRielle's room is below our table. 

What a perfect little visitor to end the day....he's nearly 3 months old now.

I showed said mountain to my niece. she saw the upside down face like I did. face reminds me of Abraham Lincoln. BUT NO, my niece went further up the mountain and saw a body with large boobs. :) :) :) :) Now we can all enjoy the mountain view. :) mom t
